49ers' DeForest Buckner: Nearly matches 2017 sack total
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Buckner recorded seven tackles (three solo) and 2.5 sacks in Sunday's loss to Minnesota.

Buckner was an absolute force Sunday, nearly matching his entire sack total (three) from 2017 in just one game. The 24-year-old is already considered one of the league's best pass-rushing interior linemen, and he appears poised to take another step forward this season.

49ers' DeForest Buckner: Becoming force as pass rusher
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Buckner led all interior defensive linemen with 19 quarterback hits in 2017, Brad Almquist of KNBR reports.

Bucker has steadily evolved into one of the top defensive tackles in the game, and arguably the best pass-rusher at his position as well. In fact, the Oregon product ultimately finished the 2017 season as Pro Football Focus' top-graded defensive tackle from a pass-rushing standpoint and the No. 4 defensive tackle overall. He reportedly looked the part at minicamp this month too, showing no signs of the chest injury he sustained in Week 17 of last season while dominating the team's offensive line with "speed and strength." Buckner is a great bet to improve upon his three sacks from a season ago given his proficiency in getting to the quarterback.

49ers' DeForest Buckner: Downgraded to out
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Buckner (chest) was ruled out for the remainder of Sunday's game against the Rams, Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Buckner left the game in the first half to be evaluated for a chest injury, and it is apparently severe enough not to risk a return. Sheldon Day should continue to see an increased workload at defensive tackle for the 49ers.

49ers' DeForest Buckner: Injures chest Week 17
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Buckner is questionable to return for Sunday's game against the Rams with a chest injury, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

Buckner exited with the injury in the first half and was able to head to the locker room under his own power. Sheldon Day should see increased snaps at defensive tackle while Buckner remains out.

49ers' DeForest Buckner: Leads team in tackles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Buckner led the 49ers with nine tackles (seven solo) against the Titans on Sunday. He was credited with a half-sack in the 25-23 win.

The nine tackles marked a new season high for the talented lineman, and it broke up an ugly three-game stretch where he totaled just three tackles. Buckner didn't take the statistical step forward following his promising rookie season, but he is on pace to finish at or near those totals, so it's tough to consider his sophomore campaign a failure.
